dents of the community today.And they say they're staying put.Even if it's poisonous, Treece is still their home. This tiny community in southeast Kansas used to be a busy mining town—with a school, hundreds of homes and bars that got crowded with drunken
miners on payday.But, the mines that turned Treece into a boomtown left it lifeless and abandoned in the end. It's a poisonous ghost town now.All but two resi- dents left when the federal government offered buyouts to the 138 people who stuck around after
the mines shut down, the Kansas City Star reports. The Environmental Protection Agency says decades of zinc ( 锌 ) and lead mining have left the soil, water and air polluted.In 2009, the federal government began offering buyouts for the resi- dents of Treece after Congress approved $3.5 mil-
lion to empty the town. Treece was abandoned after nearby Picher, Okla- homa, which sits just across the state line, was bought out by the federal government and bought out for the same reason—lead pollution left by decades of mining.Picher's buyout came first—it
was a historic event, the government giving people cash to leave the town they'd lived on their lives. However, the EPA tried to save Treece.Only one child out of 16 in the town tested positive for hav- ing dangerously high levels of lead.But the damage in Treece was already done, and the residents no
longer believed it was safe to live there.After Pich- er was abandoned, the town government in Treece also asked for a buyout.When it finally came, the EPA offered residents about $40,000 each for their homes.By 2010, 63 out of 64 homeowners sold out and their houses were torn down.
51.What did Treece look like before? A.A poisoned town. B.A town with only one resident. C.A busy mining town. D.A lifeless and abandoned boomtown.
52.Why did Treece become a poisoned town? A.Because people there wasted the natural re- sources. B.Because the mining has polluted the environ- ment. C.Because the government limited the development
of the town. D.Because zinc and lead are poisonous minerals. 53.How did the government deal with the problem in Treece? A.Forcing all the residents to leave. B.Closing all the mines.
C.Paying cash to all residents to leave. D.Tearing down all the houses there. 54.People have to leave the town because. A.they believe that the town isn't suitable for liv- ing any more
B.all miners are out of work C.they don't love their hometown any more D.they hope to get buyouts from the government B Say sorry to your wife—it may help her live longer, according to scientists.
“Sorry” may be the hardest word, but scientists say it could be one of the healthiest.Researchers have discovered that women who receive an apolo- gy for hurtful behavior suffer less stress and possi- ble damage to their heart than those who don't. It is said that the heartbeat of a wronged woman re-
turns to normal 20 percent quicker after a well - timed “sorry” than without it.But for men, their heartbeat takes longer to recover, according to the research. The research was undertaken by American scien- tists using 29 men and 59 women whose diastolic
blood pressure ( 舒张压 )was measured throughout an experiment.Diastolic blood pressure is a mea- sure of pressure in the blood vessels ( 血管 )between heartbeats—if it is continuously high it can in- crease the chances of heart attacks. The men and women were asked to undertake a dif-
ficult mathematical task.They were told they had five minutes to complete it but were disturbed after a minute and told rudely to carry out the task more quickly.They were disturbed twice more before five minutes had passed and told to speed up.Final- ly they were told, “You're obviously not good e- nough.” Two minutes later researchers said sorry
to half of the men and women. The researchers found that, on average, the women ' s diastolic blood pressure dropped back to normal 20 percent quicker if they received an apology from the researchers, while the men's took 20 per- cent longer to return to normal.One of the re-
searchers said, “Results indicate that the effects of apology and forgiveness on women are greater.” 55.The term “sorry” is considered as one of the healthiest words because it. A.is the most powerful B.can cure heart disease
C.helps people forget hurtful behavior D.can reduce pressure and damage to the heart 56.What can you know from Paragraph 3? A.Women's hearts beat faster than men's. B.Women are quicker at making apologies.
C.Men can forgive others' mistakes more easily than women. D.Men stay angry for a longer time than women af- ter receiving an apology. 57.Which of the following is the RIGHT time order for events in the study?
a.Half of them received apologies. b.They were disturbed a minute later. c.They were told that they weren't good enough. d.They were asked to finish a math task in five minutes. e.They were disturbed two more times during the
study. A.d, b, c, e, a B.d, c, b, a, e C.d, b, e, c, a D.d, c, b, e, a 58.Which of the following statements about dias- tolic blood pressure is TRUE? A.Getting angry is likely to raise diastolic blood
pressure. B.The lower one's diastolic blood pressure is, the healthier he will be. C.Women are likely to have higher diastolic blood pressure than men. D.Diastolic blood pressure is the pressure of blood
vessels when the heart beats. C The list below gives us some of American best and most popular lifestyle magazines.

D I used to work in a hospital as a pharmacy technician. As part of our duties we would make
rounds of all the nursing stations to pick up orders to deliver medicines to the nurses, who then send the medicines to the patients in all the wards ( 病 房 ). On one of my rounds I saw an elderly lady sitting outside a room, crying. People walked past and saw
her crying but nobody offered help. I stopped and asked if she was okay. She said her husband was in the room dying. I asked if I could call anyone or do anything for her, but she said she didn't have any family nearby and they never had any kids. So, I just sat there a
while, holding her hands and listening to her telling me something about herself and her husband. This went on for weeks—I was listening and hugging her, and she was crying while wishing her husband could recover. One day on my rounds I saw her sitting there, not
crying. So, I went to sit with her and asked if every- thing was okay. She told me that her husband had died. Surprised, I asked her why she was still sit- ting there. This is what she said, “I came back to say thank you. Thank you for sitting with me, lis- tening to me and just being there, helping me get through that lonely and difficult time.” I hugged
her and wished her well. I walked away with tears in my eyes and a heart bursting with joy because I had been able to help someone through her darkest days, and what moved me the most was that the elderly lady had so kind and pure a mind, a great and grateful mind!

第二节 ( 共 5 小题 ; 每小题 2 分, 满分 10 分 ) 5 Ways to Build Stronger Relationships We all have relationships.We have classmates, relatives, neighbors and probably some friends. 66 I'd like to show you how you can add a large amount of depth and strength to your relationships
and make your social life a lot more meaningful. 67 The quality of the people you meet has much to do with the quantity of the people you meet.If you don't know a lot of people, you won't meet very often people who are a good match with you in terms of personality, interests and values.
Talk about the things that matter to you. 68 If they believe in the same things and they care about the same things, they'll eagerly let you know.Thus you'll find meaningful common ground and you'll feel more connected. Express weakness.Many people try not to talk
about their failures; they hide their shortcomings and they never say anything that could embarrass them.However, by hiding your imperfection, what you do succeed in is appearing cold and imperson- al. 69 Have honesty.If you have honesty, people can trust
you.They can trust you to give them an honest feedback and keep your promises.This trust is one of the central factors of a strong relationship, both in your personal and professional life. 70 Connections between people grow strong if they can rely on each other for support when it's
needed, whether that support means a few kind words or several big actions. A.Meet more people. B.Be there for others. C.Then your task is to simply walk through the open doors.
D.However, many of these relationships are simply not satisfying. E.Many people talk about meaningless things such as the weather. F.This makes it very hard for anyone to connect with you emotionally.
G.Give others a chance to know what you care about and what you believe in. 第二卷 第四部分 : 写作 ( 共两节, 满分 35 分 ) 第一节 短文改错 ( 共 10 小题 ; 每小题 1 分, 满分 10 分 )
